Examples Of Modern Day Miracles Part 1
What qualifies as a miracle? Is it something truly unusual or unexplainable, or is it something
that leads us to think of Divine intervention? Sometimes miracles show up in places where we
never thought to look. A good example of this was the earthquake that struck Kobe, Japan, on
January 17, 1995. What was so unusual about this quake besides the fact that over 5000
people died? As reported by a Japanese newspaper, Yomiuri Shimbun, many of the deceased
had very peaceful looks on their face. How could this have been in the midst of all this violent
wrenching of the earth and building collapses? Only God knows the answer to this question.
Uganda is one of the hardest hit countries with AIDS. The faithful met and prayed often in a
little church in Kampala. Since these prayers started over 400 people have been completely
cured of the AIDS virus. When tested these people were completely free of all signs of the
virus. That's right it was not just arrested but completely erased.
There is a town in Mexico called Tlacote that attracts people by the thousands. What is this
attraction based on? It is claimed that the water in this town has healing powers. Lines of
people await their turn to drink the water, these lines sometimes stretching to over 10,000
people a day. The water comes from a well owned by Jesus Chahin. When the water was
tested by the state health department it was found to be normal but unexplainably weighs less
that other water. The healing powers of the water were discovered when a farm dog lapped
some of it and was cured from his illness. The Washington Post newspaper ran a story on this
In December of 1992, The Guardian, UK, ran a story of a six inch high statue of Mary that
wept tears of blood. The statue is owned by a woman in Santiago Chile. According to the
article, the liquid coming from the eyes of the statue was tested by the Santiago Coroner's
office and found to be genuine human blood. The statue weeps on a regular basis and
especially in front of children. The church has not taken a position one way or the other on
The circle of light miracle is one of the newest types of miracles noted. They appear mostly
on the sides of houses but have appeared in other places and have appeared in many locations
in the U.S. Many have appeared in the same place for years while others appear for only a
little while and then vanish never to appear again. It reported that one appeared on a man's
shirt and when he went into his house the circle of light was still on his shirt. Another man
reported that he was in a restaurant and when he looked out the window he saw a circle of
light on the side of a bus which passed by. What are these circles and where do they come
from, no one knows? It has been reported that when people meditate near them they grow
There is a Lebanese girl who is very unusual. It seems she actually weeps crystal tears. She
has doctors baffled. She produces about 7 tears a day. She states that she is in no pain even
though the tears are as sharp as glass. Her father wants to send her to a specialist in America
or Europe for further examination. Another girl living in Algeria is crying tears of colored
threads. She too experiences no pain.
A team of Dutch research doctors conducted a study of 344 heart attack survivors and found
that more than one in 10 of them had experienced "emotions, visions, or lucid thoughts" while
they were considered "clinically dead", meaning that they were unconscious with no signs of
pulse, breathing or brain activity at the time. Some of them reported having "out-of-body"
experiences. The survey itself took two years to conduct and is the largest study to-date on the
NDE phenomenon. The team believes that this proves the existence of a soul.
What is the cross of light? It is a phenomena that is taking place all over the world. Glowing
crosses are appearing in glass everywhere. There are reports that people who have
experienced the cross of light in their homes have changed their outlook on life and feel serine
and better about themselves. Dr. Chang noticed that patients in his hospital were recovering at
a much faster rate and couldn't understand why.Then, while one of Dr Ching's associates,
Nieves Taguinog, was locking up at the clinic one night, she noticed a cross on one of the
windows. To make absolutely sure Ms Taguinog waited until the next night to see the cross
again before telling Dr Ching. More crosses were discovered in neighboring houses. In
Copper Ridge Baptist Church there is a large cross of light. "You cannot take a photo inside
the church without that white glow in the picture used to have weddings in there but people
complain since the crosses came, that the light is in every photo!"
Unexplained Ancient Anomalies
Over the last few decades, miners in South Africa have been digging up
mysterious metal spheres. Origin unknown, these spheres measure
approximately an inch or so in diameter, and some are etched with three
parallel grooves running around the equator. Two types of spheres have
been found: one is composed of a solid bluish metal with flecks of white;
the other is hollowed out and filled with a spongy white substance. The
kicker is that the rock in which they where found is Precambrian - and
dated to 2.8 billion years old! Who made them and for what purpose is
While mineral hunting in the mountains of California near Olancha during
the winter of 1961, Wallace Lane, Virginia Maxey and Mike Mikesell found
a rock, among many others, that they thought was a geode - a good
addition for their gem shop. Upon cutting it open, however, Mikesell found
an object inside that seemed to be made of white porcelain. In the center
was a shaft of shiny metal. Experts estimated that, if this was a geode, it
should have taken about 500,000 years for this fossil-encrusted nodule to
form, yet the object inside was obviously of sophisticated human
manufacture. Further investigation revealed that the porcelain was
surround by a hexagonal casing, and an x-ray revealed a tiny spring at
one end, like a spark plug. There's a bit of controversy around this
artifact, as you can imagine. Some contend that the artifact was not inside
a geode at all, but encased in hardened clay. The artifact itself has been
identified by experts as a 1920s-era Champion spark plug. Unfortunately,
the Coso Artifact has gone missing and cannot be thoroughly examined. Is
there a natural explanation for it? Or was it found, as the discoverer
claimed, inside a geode? If so, how could a 1920s sparkplug get inside a
Fossils, as we learned in grade school, appear in rocks that were formed
many thousands of years ago. Yet there are a number of fossils that just
don't make geological or historical sense. A fossil of a human handprint,
for example, was found in limestone estimated to be 110 million years old.
What appears to be a fossilized human finger found in the Canadian Arctic
also dates back 100 to 110 million years ago. And what appears to be the
fossil of a human footprint, possibly wearing a sandal, was found near
Delta, Utah in a shale deposit estimated to be 300 million to 600 million
Humans were not even around 65 million years ago, never mind people
who could work metal. So then how does science explain semi-ovoid
metallic tubes dug out of 65-million-year-old Cretaceous chalk in France?
In 1885, a block of coal was broken open to find a metal cube obviously
worked by intelligent hands. In 1912, employees at an electric plant broke
apart a large chunk of coal out of which fell an iron pot! A nail was found
embedded in a sandstone block from the Mesozoic Era. And there are
many, many more such anomalies.
What are we to make of these finds? There are several possibilities:
Intelligent humans date back much, much further than we
Other intelligent beings and civilizations existed on earth far
beyond our recorded history.
Our dating methods are completely inaccurate, and that stone,
coal and fossils form much more rapidly than we now estimate.
In any case, these examples - and there are many more - should prompt
any curious and open-minded scientist to reexamine and rethink the true
history of life on earth.
There was an atheist couple who had a child. The couple never told their daughter
anything about the Lord. One night when the little girl was 5 years old, the parents fought
with each other and the dad shot the Mom, right in front of the child. Then, the dad shot
himself. The little girl watched it all. She then was sent to a foster home. The foster mother
was a Christian and took the child to church. On the first day of Sunday School, the foster
mother told the teacher that the girl had never heard of Jesus, and to have patience with
her. The teacher held up a picture of Jesus and said, "Does anyone know who this is?" The
little girl said, "I do, that's the man who was holding me the night my parents died."
A young man who had been raised as an atheist was training to be an Olympic diver. The
only religious influence in his life came from his outspoken Christian friend. The young
diver never really paid much attention to his friend's sermons, but he heard them often.
One night the diver went to the indoor pool at the college he attended. The lights were all
off, but as the pool had big skylights and the moon was bright, there was plenty of light to
practice by. The young man climbed up to the highest diving board and as he turned is
back to the pool on the edge of the board and extended his arms out, he saw his shadow on
the wall. The shadow of his body, was in the shape of a cross. Seeing that image created
such an unusual and strong response that instead of diving, he knelt down and finally
asked God to come into his life. As the young man stood, a maintenance man walked in
and turned the lights on. The pool had been drained for repairs. Source:
In 1982 many school children from an elementary school in Luzon, the Philippines saw a
vision. A little girl sitting in the school's playground saw a vision in the sky of Mary. Mary
had a baby in her arms and an old man standing next to her. The little girl wasn't the only
one to see this, may other children saw it also. Along with the children a teacher had also
seen the vision. The children described the vision as Mary dressed in a gown with a gold
crown. The children had also seen angels with golden hair dressed in long gowns and one
of them was holding a key. The teacher said she was compelled to kneel down without
having control of her actions.
In Rincon, Puerto Rico in 1994 visitors to the Santa Rosa de Lima church saw tears
coming from the statue of the Virgin Mary. The statue has continued to cry to this day with
some church goers claiming cures from illness.
There is a statue of Our Lady of lourdes in a Carmelite Convent in Diego Martin in
Trinidad that is weeping tears of blood. It was reported in the papers that the statue first
began to weep in 1996. The blood, after being tested, proved to be human or so the press
stated. Investigations of this phenomenon are being carried out by the Archbishop.
An icon of our Lady of Guadeloupe at Guadeloupe's Shrine in Northern Mexico City has a
miraculous feature. In the eyes of the image of the Virgin of Guadeloupe are microscopic
figures. The figures are not visible to the human eye, except for one that of the Spaniard,
which is the largest and it is believed that no one could have painted them since they are so
tiny. This is not a painting and no one has been able to discover how the image was
stamped on. The figures that appear in the eyes are a virtually naked servant; an elderly
man (Bishop Friar Juan de Zumárraga); a youth - the interpreter; an Indian with a tilma
(Juan Diego); a black woman (a slave); a bearded Spaniard; and, lastly, an Indian family
including father, mother, three children and two more adults, who could be grandparents or
uncles. Peruvian scientist José Aste Tonsmann, an expert at International Business
Machines in the digital processing of images began investigating this phenomena twenty-
two years ago. He decided to investigate the presence of other figures reflected in the
Virgin's eyes and, in fact, found the twelve.
Virgin Mary Appears in Florida.
In 1996 a black glass building in Florida became emblazoned with the outline of the
Virgin Mary in the glass. The image was rainbow colored and was on the Seminole
Finance building in Clearwater. The size of the image was approximately 33 feet high and
48 feet wide. Over 450,000 people have visited the site so far. Some have left flowers or
candles and statues. In 1997 vandals thought that they would deface the image and threw
an unknown liquid at it causing a stain on it. There were two days of heavy rain and
afterwards the image had fully recovered.
Crowd Sees Cross of Light
On February 13, 2002 hundreds of people gathered outside the trailer home of Concepcion
and Jesus Aceves to view an unmistakeable cross of light that appeared on the glass area
on the door of the trailer home. It seemed to float there without a source.
More Crosses of Light
There is a cross of light on the window of a house in New Zealand. This house has been
featured on national television and is owned by Mr. Paul Larkin. Mr Larkin was
interviewed along with Dr. Tom Barnes who is a leader in Image Processing and Optics.
He is employed by the Physics Department of Auckland University. Dr Barnes
demonistrated the effect of a laser beam on glass of the same type. "The glass has got an
array of dimples along the back and you can see that if I rub my fingernail over it you can
hear the buzz. These dimples act like little lenses, and when the laser beam goes through
that array of lenses, they bend the light more in the vertical and horizontal directions than
they do in the diagonal, so you see a cross." The doctor could not explain however how the
properties had changed in the glass in the window of the house even though there are
sometimes to identical glass windows side by side and yet only one is changed. There is
only one cross on a window.
Crying Statues in Chile
On November 14, 1992 a statue of the Virgin Mary began to weep in Santiago, Chile. The
tears it shed were blood. The tears were examined and shown to be human blood, type 0
Positive. The tears appeared many times but seemed to increase when children were
present. The statue is small and made of porcelain which is colored blue and white.
A Catholic Priest With a Stigmata
In Virginia there is a Catholic priest at St Elizbeth Ann Seton Church in Lake Ridge, that
not only has a stigmata but also causes statues of the Virgin Mary to weep tears of blood.
Hundreds of people have seen the statues cry during and after church services. It was
reported that this priest said mass at a different parish and a wooden statue of the Virgin
Mary began dripping water. The events are random and do not occur on a regular basis.
The Washington Post and USA today carried stories on these events.
Girl On Life Support Causes Miracles
There is a girl in Worcester who has been on life support since the age of 3 years old, she
is now 19. She had fallen into a swimming pool when she was 3 years old and has been on
life support ever since. She can not communicate. Oil exudes from statues near her and
anyone can get this oil for free by writing the family. The girls name is Audrey Santo of
Worcester and you can CLICK HERE for her website. Many people believe that Audrey
can intercede with God and ask Him to grant miracles. She has been credit with many
miracles such as help a child walk again after his leg was nearly torn off. Priests have
reported seeing chalices fill with oil, never overflow, and when emptied fill again.
Strange Lights from Monastery
In 1997 in Nyaurglaybin township, near Rangoon, thousands of the faithful flocked to a
Buddist monastery. Strange beams of multi colored light have been eminating from the
monastery. People in the crows also claimed to see relics of Buddha appear on the robes of
one of the monks. Scriptures state that those that see the relics will be distanced from hell
by 92 worlds.
Virgin Mary Appears At Fatama
In Portugal, in 1917, the Virgin Mary Appeared to 3 children and revealed three secrets to
them. The first was a vision of hell, the second was that World War I would soon end but a
second more terrible war would start if people disn't stop offending God and the third is
still a secret. Thousands of pilgrims witnessed the sun spinning in a rainbow of light, and
there were many healings.

Religion is full of the sights of hermits devoting their existence to God and sitting out in the
desert somewhere, maybe in a cave of some type. I am not saying there is anything wrong with
this picture or practice. I only mention it because I am about to talk about St. Charbel, a
Lebanese hermit that is credited with many miracles. He was born on May 8, 1828. His parents
were very religious and instructed him in the ways of piety. His birthplace was Bkaakafra in the
North Lebanon Mountains.
St Charbel believed that solitude was the way to gain God's grace and at the age of 23 he left
home and joined the Monastery of Our Lady of Mayfouq. The monastery was located near Jbeil.
He didn't stay their for his whole life. He was sent to the Monastery of Saint Maroun at Annaya.
This may be blasphemy to some but I have to wonder why he took such a severe step as to
renounce ever seeing his family, including his mother again. This is exactly what he did. He
decided that the way to holiness was to cut all ties to the world. His mother had come to the
monastery and begged him to return home but instead he vowed never to see her again or for that
matter ever see anyone again from the outside world.
He was very well thought of since, after he became a priest, he carried out his duties without
complaint and in an exemplary fashion, including all different types of manual labor. He never
broke his vows of chastity. He was allowed to enter the hermitage in 1875 and even though he
was a hermit he was still subject to the rules that were enforced by his superiors.
At this point many miracles became associated with him. One of the first miracles happened
when one of the priests was trapped by a snake. It was said he ordered the snake away and it
turned and left. He is also credited with clearing fields of grasshoppers by sprinkling them with
holy water. Then he died from a stroke on December 24, 1898. But this was only the beginning
of his miracles.
An unexplained brightness surrounded the grave where St. Charbel was buried. It lasted for 45
days then gradually began to fade away. Of course by this time people had found out about it and
were coming from everywhere to see it. But the pilgrims that came were not all peaceful and
some tried to steal pieces of anything they could get from the grave. Now the authorities opened
the grave to see what was going on. A liquid was coming from the body that looked like blood
and it was easily seen. The liquid can still be seen today. It is said that a cloth that contains stains
where the liquid got onto it is responsible for many healings.
The last time the grave was opened was in 1955 and it still oozed the red liquid and was still
flexible as if he had just died and rigor hadn't set in yet. A nun named Sister Maria Abdel Kamari
was bedridden for 14 years and given the last rights three times. She was taken out to the grave
and then something miraculous happened. She felt a surge of energy come over her body and
stood on her own. She had been completely cured of her illness. A mother of 12 suffered
narrowing of the arteries and became paralyzed in 1993. She lay in bed and then a vision came
over her. St Charbel came to her bed with another monk. He put his hand on her neck and told
her he was going to operate on her. She felt a sharp pain under his hand. He told her to drink but
she protested that she couldn't drink without a straw. He said that she had been operated on and
cured and didn't need a straw anymore. She awoke from her vision and was cured. Another
woman who was paralyzed was given a brew made from oak leaves that come from a tree that
St. Charbel had blessed. She said when she drank the liquid she felt a burning that was so painful
she couldn't adequately describe it. She fell to the floor with spasms of her feet and passed out.
When she awoke she had been cured.
One of the most spectacular miracles involves a Mr. Raymond Nader. He had gone to the
hermitage of St. Charbel to meditate. That night he felt this fiery warmth around him, then he
says he was in a different world and bathed in a beam of light, light that was much brighter than
any light anyone had ever seen. He thought he was dreaming but then he heard a voice, that
seemed to come from everywhere, saying that he was more awake than ever. He said he felt deep
peace. Four hours had passed but it only seemed like seconds. When he took off his pullover
there were five finger prints on his arm and they itched and oozed blood and water. It was
confirmed that these prints were caused by a second degree burn. A year later he saw a
procession with a very old priest at the end. He approached him to speak to him then he again
felt that he had been taken somewhere else. He was given a message and the voice he heard was
that of St. Charbel. He would be given five more messages and each time the fingerprints would
reappear. Some of the Messages are as follows:
"The Lord has created each human being to shine, to enlighten the world; you are the light of the
world. Each man is a lantern meant to shine; the Lord has provided a clear and transparent glass
to the lantern, to enable that light to shine and illuminate the world; but they are taking care of
the glass and forgetting about the light; they are caring about the glass shape, coloring and
decorating it, until it becomes thick, opaque, preventing light from shining forth, and thus is the
world drowned in darkness. The Lord insists on illuminating the world. Your glass must become
transparent again. You should realize the purpose for which you are born in this world."
"Christ knows what is in your hearts, and it is your hearts that he wants. Don't seek for the truth
outside the Christ; when you know the Christ, you will know the Truth and you will be free. The
Christ wants you to be free. Fear not, and be sure that the Christ has defeated the world."
"The Church of the Christ is a rock upon which are being shattered the waves of evil. Christ is
the way. Crosses of light will flood the Earth."
